Storage Tips

Before you put your  items into storage here are some storage tips that you can take to protect  keep your belongings .

To better protect your goods place them in  boxes, totes or other storage containers.

Thoroughly clean, disinfect and dry refrigerators, freezers, stoves and other appliances. Appliances with doors can be stored with the door slightly open and some can be stacked on top of each other.

Be sure to clean and dry all electrical equipment before placing in your unit.

Slow rust by wiping down all types of metal surfaces before storing.  Use a few drops of machine oil to lightly coat these items for preventing rust.

Pack all books, files and documents flat and use bubble wrap or newspaper to fill in empty spaces in the boxes and totes.

Use bubble wrap and other packing materials when storing dishes and glassware.  Pack similar items in the same box and fill empty spaces with peanuts, bubble wrap or newspaper.

Disassemble furniture and place pieces on a corrugated cardboard mat or plastic sheet before placing on floor or pallet.

Stack lightweight chairs seat to seat , but avoid stacking other types of furniture on top of each other.  Cover all upholstery with light cotton dust covers or plastic.

Holiday decorations can be stored in their original cartons or plastic tubs.  Wrap ornaments and other delicate items in bubble wrap or newspaper.

Cover computer screens and large televisions screens with dust covers and wrap in bubble wrap.
